You’ll gain new ways of driving innovation and developing high-performance teams.

Whole Life Entrepreneurship: How to bulletproof your family against your business

Our business almost destroyed our marriage. Our marriage almost destroyed our business.

Join Kerry Anderson, author of “In Bed with the Business: The Entrepreneurial Spouse’s Survival Guide,” and Adam Anderson, successful entrepreneur and speaker, as they share their blind spots and lessons learned while bringing their lives back from the edge. Their dream is to help entrepreneurial families understand that growth in your business comes from unlocking joy and power in your family.

Applying the ``Big M`` VALUE Equation™ to Your Business/Organization

“Big M” Marketing involves everything from the highest level of business strategy to all aspects of execution and involves everyone in the c-suite, not just the CMO. It is particularly relevant as we face the many disruptions in today’s marketplace including major evolution in technology.

This session is meant for all C-suite executives in both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors. All C-suite leaders will benefit from coming together and embracing this new model of engagement to better break down silos and connect the dots necessary to maximize VALUE.

Vision, Alignment, Leadership, Understanding, and Execution are the cornerstones of creating and maximizing VALUE for all of your stakeholders. In this breakout session, we will discuss:

  • Origins of the “”Big M”” VALUE Equation, its impact, and its relationship to “”Big M”” Marketing™
  • How we have used it in our own businesses and to help others
  • Examples of organizations playing out in the marketplace that appear to do this well and those that don’t
    • “Big Little Lies” associated with maximizing VALUE
  • How each of you can apply this in your business/organization
Manufacturing 2020: How to Prepare for the Effects on Your Business & Why You Should Care

Manufacturing touches every life every day. Consider how many manufactured goods are involved in just the production of our food, shelter, water, transportation, and healthcare. Did you know that for every $1 of value created in manufacturing, $1.4 of value is created in other areas of the economy?

We cannot think that being a services economy means that we don’t need to be a manufacturing economy. A healthy US manufacturing economy helps all other areas of not only the US economy but the world economy, we are all impacted when the US manufacturing economy is weakened.

Consider that on a single individual daily basis, cost of goods increase when manufacturing can’t meet demand. Which means my income will not purchase as much. A services economy still runs on manufactured goods. As an example, what good is your internet connection if there is no hardware to deliver it or receive and use it?

So, what can I do? Manufacturing has really big issues like workforce shortages, loss of innovation, weak supply chain, and lack of sustainability and I am just one individual.

This track is geared to business leaders and entrepreneurs ready to put in the work. All your dreams and goals are meaningless if you never take action. Add in how to make it strategic action and you’re on the path to success. As the industry and technology evolve so do your actions. Takeaways from this track include the evolution of leadership, the disruption of industries, and developing personal financial success.

The Evolution of Female Leadership

Every day women opt out of the corporate world to become their own boss. Leadership is the number one factor that will decide how fast success is achieved in entrepreneurship. From personal leadership to global thought innovation, women’s role is imperative if we are to create a better future for all.The female perspective has for far too long not been taught, implemented and considered as a strategic strength. Women now are free to show up for who they are bringing their talent to balance economies and bring opportunities that are inclusive and with diversity in mind.

Knowing how to leverage, negotiate, collaborate, and position your uniqueness and strength comes with barriers, challenges and warnings that must be broken down. Creating the right group of peers is integral not only for success but for survival.

Sacrificing the Present to Grow the Future: Making Sports an Asset Class

Most every decision a business makes is a trade-off between the present and the future. Turn left, and there is the lure of some immediate success: money, glory, fame or recognition. Go right, and there seems to be nothing but struggle, but underneath that mountain of challenges is a seed of hope that is getting stronger every day.In this interactive session, we share the story of how we are turning sports into an asset class, one step at a time. At every turn, we chose “right”, straining every resource. In the darkest of moments, what kept us alive is our grit and our search for long-term success and legacy, not just for us but for the society as a whole. If you want to be a diamond, and not just an Instagram moment, you’ll likely find something in our journey that is relevant and interesting to you. We will cover the following:

  • What is the optimal decision making framework for business success in the long-term
  • How to deal with short-termers, and how to bring them on board
  • Why establishing the right vision is one of the best things you can do
  • Why succession planning must start early
  • The importance of defining success

We hope that you will also walk away with insights that will help you self reflect on your own business and industry. What does competition look like? Is it a fragmented industry with many fighting for attention or are there one or two giants that seem impossible to overcome (Hint: we are in the latter category). How can you disrupt when you feel you can barely move the big players? What to do when all your efforts seemingly go into a black hole?

This session is meant for entrepreneurs who want to disrupt, leaders who want to establish consensus in an organization, warriors who are looking for inspiration, and for any sports fan who is curious about the future of sports.

Angel Investing in the 21st Century

Plus, you will learn how to put the odds in your favor using the same strategies venture capitalists and private equity partners use, even if you don’t have access to their levels of capital and resources.
